Compromising and Compromising?

We consider ourselves to be independent beings. Post job: “I’m fine. Now I’m able to hang out with y’all more” Perpetually single: “I have so much free time and it’s great! I get to do what I want to do. I’m able to sit in my bed and get crumbs everywhere.” However, the hope of […]

What We Deserve

Every school break I go home to what feels like some of the same family drama. One person has says something to annoy another, my little brother and sister of course fighting with each other and me starting out this trip home by knowing exactly how many days and hours this ordeal could last. What […]

“Can’t Feel Ashamed”

I have an admission to make. But not an admission, because admissions sound like I did something wrong. I waited until this school year to get my license. I was a 20-year-old without a license. Not to say I couldn’t drive at all, but I still had that beginner’s fear every time I got in the car. Plus […]

Freshman Turned PR Boy

I don’t recognize the PR boy I am today. Two years ago I probably had the same basic skills I have today, but now I actually have experience under my belt. As a freshman I remember how impressive the seniors were. The ones who seemed to have and know it all. The ones who seemed to be a hustler by day and rockstar by […]

He Ran from Me

It wasn’t that I still had feelings for him or really even hoped the text was true. Seeing those words was surreal. I wanted the truth. I wanted him not to be able to play my heart like it felt like the others did. I wanted to feel desirable – someone attracted to me like […]

Alone Right Now

I remember walking back upstairs to my room after my mom dropped me off at college. She cried all the way here and as she started to drive off. I remember feeling like we were driving into an unknown. As I walked back into my room and sat down, I thought to myself: This is […]

Finding Roots – A Sweet Two Years

Today is the second anniversary of writing Finding Roots! When I started this blog, I didn’t know what to expect, or who would really read it. It turned into a vulnerable, beautiful process allowing me to be connect with others, find myself and be honest. Below are the top five posts of my blog that helped bring me […]

A Look Back at Sexy, Party, WOW, a Flashback and Trust

 This is my past week in photos and some of the lessons I’m experiencing. My high school friend/faithful yoga partner and I kicked off trying to get back into a yoga routine. The hard part is finding a teacher that fits our style. This year is all about being “sexy juniors.” But maybe it’s really […]

Moment of Honesty

We met at the statue. This was a long time coming. I only received his call ten minutes ago. We decided to go to Chipotle, so he could eat. I immediately thought what a mistake that was. Natalie and I once discussed how boys and Chipotle are never a good thing. He and I sat across […]

Or at Least I Can Pretend

I just didn’t think it was going to be this hard. I simply wanted a clean break for everyone involved. I wanted things easy. When I say break I don’t mean like forget everything, forget each other. I just wanted things simpler. I guess not so emotional on my part. And part of me questions how can […]
